I did a reverse search and that number is a land line out of New York. Someone is playing games.

"Chad" just tried the old scam routine on me. He just happened to have all the parts I wanted....very easy to discern this was a scammer from the first text.


KJV Psalms 16:11

Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Thanks for the heads up Alan. The trusting nature of the OG membership makes us vulnerable to this age old scam. Be vigilant.
